New to Forum - Schooling questions (Malta)

Hi there

My husband and I along with our 3 children are relocating to Sliema next July and all three are school age. When we arrive they will be..
Girl - 6
Boy - Protected content Oct)
Girl 15

We have been emailing the schools, both private and state and only 1 has got back to us and it is one we are not going to choose. We can't really afford private school for all kids until I am set up with work. It will only be my husband working to start with as he has employment already.

I have seen some mention about English being spoken in State schools. I am worried about the change for the children but if there is English spoken then it shouldn't be a problem.

Is it true the Secondary schools teach in English because the books are in English? I just need to clear these sort of things up.

My husband wont be going over until May to sort accommodation and finalising schooling but would like to have a school chosen prior to that.

Any help would be appreciated.
